MANILA, Philippines — As 2023 drew to a close, President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. said that the government’s New Year’s resolutions for 2024 would be to render “great and honest services.”

In a video statement on Facebook, Marcos said that he and his family were one with the Filipino people during New Year festivities. As many Filipinos have resolutions, Marcos also imparted the government’s vow for 2024.


“The New Year’s Resolution of your government is a consistent striving to render good and honest services that are key to improving our lives. Let us not forget that great things are always possible,” Marcos said in a mix of Filipino and English.


“We will continue to purge the government of rules that slow the delivery of public services because, when projects get delayed, progress is denied by our people. And this commitment to efficiency and service will extend to documents and licenses because service delayed is also service denied,” the president added.

Marcos also highlighted several achievements in 2023, some of which were not captured in mainstream headlines.

“We built 33 additional specialty centers, over 2,000 classrooms, and seven additional cold chain facilities. We facilitated investments in renewable energy through the award of renewable energy contracts with a total potential capacity of around 121,000 megawatts. We also completed eight water supply projects with 147 additional water projects being implemented in preparation for next year,” Marcos said.
